Eye Spy A Hundred Dollar Lie
Once Upon a Time there was a buzz that did ring upon my ears but the sound unwound; Thatâ€™s when I found a hundred dollar bill.
Still, my hands grasped it as if theyâ€™d take it away;
Hey you, boy! Whereâ€™d you get that hundred dollar bill? Adrenaline did fill my fingertips that day and this boy wasnâ€™t giving it away.
This is mine! I earned it you see; Now scat, go on now and flee!
Now you listen here boy thatâ€™s mine, It fell out of my pocket, hereâ€™s the hole, you see?
Sir you must be mistaking or simply faking, I earned this money and that was my fee!
Whoosh, a gust of wind it would seem, there goes my money blowing away.
I shoved that old geezer right on the ground and I chased my money as it was rolling around.
There it is, Iâ€™ve got it! Whoosh, not again. There it goes whisking away; and now that old man was running my way.
I stepped back and tripped him, thud, eww is that blood? This time youâ€™ll stay!
Where is it? My heart sank; Ah ha, there it is! Back at it again.
I got you! What the hell? There it goes again. That wasnâ€™t wind! Say, Somethings fishy here.
Eye spy a hundred dollar lie! Thatâ€™s when I realized my fears. It was a rich man winding a string, laughing in tears.
Come here boy, sit on my knee. He put the money in my pocket and said you earned this I see.
Gee, thanks sir!
As he was driving away I pulled out my money. Can it really be; he actually gave it to me?
To my surprise, eye spy a hundred dollar lie! It was Washington saying, I never lie.
